Mothers Day - A Royal Event

By: Arleen M. Kaptur

Mother's Day is truly a Holiday for that very special
person in your life that has catered to, taken care
of, and brought you to where you are today! She
has served countless meals, washed thousands of
dishes, kissed hundreds of "owies" and has been
there to hold your hand for those monumental
catastrophes as well as little "molehill" disappointments
While you may not have agreed with everything she did or
say, you could always count on her love and care.
Serve her royally, give her only the very best, and
watch the delight in her eyes. Enjoy!


2 cups of her favorite springtime fruit, such as
strawberries, bananas, pears, early peaches, blue-
berries, etc.

1/3 cup plain yogurt

2 tbs. honey

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 tbs. butter

2 eggs, well beaten

2 ozs. mild cheddar cheese, grated

Edible flowers for garnish
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and honey.
Gently add the cinnamon. Set the mixture aside.

Melt 1 tbs. butter in a pan over medium heat. Pour
in the well beaten eggs.. As the ends of
the omelet begin to dry, lift it gently so that the re-
mainder of the egg mixture can cook.

Remove the
omelet to a warm plate. Sprinkle the
mild cheddar onto the cooked omelet. Place under
broiler for 1 min. until cheese is melted and the eggs
are done.
Spread 1-1/2 cups of the fruit mixture onto the omelet.
Top with a dollop of the yogurt mixture. Fold the
omelet over the fruit. Spoon the remaining fruit over
the folded omelet. Garnish with a spoonful of the
yogurt and the edible flowers.
Not only great tasting, and very special, but beautiful
to behold as well
With this omelet, serve a fresh, hot cup of coffee or
tea (with lemon slice).
Also using frozen hash-brown potatoes, add 1/2 cup
of finely diced white onion, for that very unique touch.
Meat: 2 slices of hickory bacon
or maple flavored pork sausage links,
or honey ham.

A nicely toasted English muffic, with a pat of butter
placed on a small plate with a lacy paper doilie beneath
the muffin.
Place fresh flowers in a bud vase, add a linen napkin
tied with yarn, in your mother's favorite color. A hand-
made card signed by everyone adds that lovely
personal touch.
You have just made Mom - Queen for a Day!

Special Note: If mom is far away and you cannot travel
on Mother's Day, try telephoning, and let all the kids
say HI.
When you send a card, enclose a few special treats -
such as pretty flowery postage stamps, a roll of elegant
address labels, or a unique checkbook covered that
you made by applying contact paper to a pre-existing
cover, but personalizing it as only you could.

If mom is in a care facility, make it a top priority to-do
item to visit. Bring along gifts that she will enjoy and
treasure: hairpins or combs that you have hot-glued
birthstones of each of her children or grandchildren;
picture frames using this same technique and include
a collage of small photos
Teddy bears (small), stuffed animals, small boxes to
hold "special" things, lap quilts, or personal items in a
carrying case you made just for her.
Sure, store bought items are beautifulFree Articles, but hand-made
are exceptionally enduring and comforting to hold and
admire time after time
Thank you.
